THE DISGUISE SKILL

Associated Statistic: Perception

Your Disguise level rates your character's ability at altering his or her physical appearance. Those with the Disguise ability are skilled at using wigs, clothing, makeup and other substances to alter their appearance.

At lower levels, you are only skilled enough to appear as someone from another country or social class. At high levels (8 and above), there is a chance that you could successfully impersonate the appearance of a specific person (in dim lighting or from a distance, to a casual acquaintance). If you have a low rating in this Skill, you should include some hints to your character's true identity/class/etc. in his or her @desc.

NOTE: This Skill relates only to changing your appearance. Adopting an accent or mimicking a voice would require levels in the Acting Skill.

NOTE: If you use this skill to impersonate a noble or the member of an area (Child of the Light, Illuminator, etc.) on a regular basis you should contact the Wizard Staff so they know what's going on.

The following is a guideline to what your character might know at each skill level. See Skill Charts for info on using these charts in role-play.

  1. You know how to conceal an embarrassing blemish and enhance the blush of your cheeks.
  2. You have learned the value of certain berries that can colour your hair.
  3. Olive-skinned Altaran one minute, pale-skinned Cairhienan the next.
  4. Noble lord one minute, beggar the next.
  5. You can impersonate (with levels in Acting) certain notable personages who are frequently in the public eye to casual acquaintances of those personages.
  6. Your own mother couldn't recognize you.
  7. Disguising yourself as a Seafolk would be a successful task.
  8. Appearing to look like an Aiel wouldn't be out of the question.
  9. You might even be able to fool an Ogier into thinking you're one of his ilk.
  10. You could disguise yourself as a Trolloc so convincingly you could fool a Borderlander.
